No. All payments must go through TakeLessons.com.
As a teacher on TakeLessons.com, you agree that all transactions with your TakeLessons students will be processed through us. This includes the initial lesson package as well as all subsequent lessons. At no point should you accept money directly from your TakeLessons students. Other sites charge an up-front listing fee, an ongoing membership fee, or they charge you for each lead. Not us! We only make money when you do! Failure to comply with this guideline will result in your immediate removal from our site. That means our partnership would be over, and nobody wants that!
As a reminder, student retention has a direct impact on your ranking in TakeLessons' search results. With each student's repeat purchase you can improve your position in search and increase your chances of getting new business through TakeLessons.
